Comment: A very detailed but eminently readable life of Coll Ciotach Macdonald of Colonsay.





Raghnall Macille Dhuibh, in "The Scotsman"

"Tha e furasta ge-ta taobhan a ghabhail nuair thigear gu cogaidhean an ama sin, agus tha e cudromach a bhith a' cuimhneachadh nach robh an t-urram agus am fulang uile air aon taobh na sgeulachd. Aon rud luachmhor tha Byrne a' toirt dhuinn se leabhar-latha an Urr. John Weir, a ghabhadh 'na phriosanach aig Alastair mac Colla 's a dh'eug fo smachd.

Tha eilean Cholbhasa aig teas meadhain sgeul Cholla Chiotaich, agus tha e air feumail gur ann an Colbhasa tha an t-ughdar a' fuireach. Cha leig mi ach aon ghnust mun leabhar: rinn Byrne feum mor de phaipear "Colla Ciotach", le fear Ronald Black ... ach dhiochuimhnich e sin innse dhan luchd-leughaidh" -

The Ileach

"... a book that sends the interested reader scurrying to other books to follow up leads that he has laid. ... it is years since I read an history book which so encouraged me to follow up so many references, as a good history book should.... The book is well produced and well organised, with a good summary of the contents of each chapter so that you do not need to search too far to find what the author has to say on a particular event or personality. It is well provided with maps, genealogical tables and appendices as well as a bibliography. It is a substantial contribution to the historiography of Argyll and of the great political and religious struggles of the seventeenth century. No household in Islay, Jura or Colonsay should be without it."
